Voice Recognition


I remember first using voice recognition software about 10 years ago. Apparently, the experience is still the same today, as evidenced by this wonderful video of a Microsoft demonstration. I suppose this is one of those things we’ll never have. Like flying cars.

    I still have (in my office, in fact), the box for OS/2 Warp 4, which came with a headset microphone. I’m pretty sure the only difference between OS/2 v3 and v4, in fact, was the fact that 4 came with a microphone and had the first version of IBM’s ViaVoice bundled with it. It worked better than the voice recognition in Vista appears to, but that’s not saying much.
    Don’t even get me started on flying cars.

    Heh. That’s amusing.
    But re: flying cars, peep these guys.
    MIT alumni, of course.
